hellofood app

For so long most of the skeptics said that they would not believe in technology or smartphones until it/they could deliver food, that time has now been with us for a while through Hellofood and Ugandans have embraced the convenience of online food ordering and the increased internet penetration has helped a great deal in this technological advancement benefit.

How Hellofood works?

Hellofood is the leading online marketplace for food ordering, and it offers the convenience to order food online from more than 170 of the best restaurants in Kampala and Entebbe. Customers can either place their orders through the website or the Hellofood app which is free on Android, windows and IOS.

Benefit to the Customers

The customers can choose their favorite restaurant on the platform and select their desired meal of choice from the restaurant’s menu and the order is automatically transmitted to the restaurant for preparation and delivery. The price one pays on Hellofood is same as in the restaurant, except for a small delivery fee based on distance from restaurant –since Hellofood uses a professional fleet of delivery drivers to pick and deliver the meals to the customer’s doorstep.

Customers pay for the meal through cash on delivery or MTN mobile money online, meaning one can even order a meal for another person. The Customers also enjoy many deals on meals that they can only get on the Hellofood platform, such as buy one get one free and also food coupons which discount meals for the customers. Hellofood further helps users to select from hundreds of restaurants through customer reviews displayed on the platform.


Hellofood is transforming the eating habits of people in Kampala and Entebbe. The platform, which started with only a couple of restaurants, has successfully managed to overcome skepticism and It has secured in just two years, partnerships with more than 170 food outlets among the finest in the country.

These partner restaurants earn a lot of revenue from the business they tap into from the orders they get from hellofood and not only their walk in clients. These partnerships have allowed Hellofood to have an exceptional and unparalleled culinary diversity, accessible in a few clicks, in two cities with more than 5 million inhabitants combined. Restaurants also benefit from the reviews on the platform, which mean that if they provide the best culinary experience then many people will get to know and also want to try out their food and service hence more sales and revenue.

In fact today, Hellofood, can proclaim itself as the food delivery service, offering the most comprehensive and virtually unlimited menu. Through its mobile application and website, Hellofood take every day visitors into a gastronomic tour around the world through the many Restaurants, cafés, bistros, fast foods, bakeries, ice-cream parlors and tea-rooms, etc. every delight the cities have to offer are on Hellofood. The platform offers no less than 170 restaurants to order African cuisine, Asian dishes, establishments with a European menu, American menus, pizza places, which was the most ordered dish last year on Hellofood.


Hellofood has obviously created employment for the delivery drivers, Customer service team, direct sales team, persons involved in the marketing operations, and management of the company and of course the increased staff at the restaurants as a result of the increased business, plus the taxes the company pays.

Hellofood now dominates the online industry in line with the rapid penetration of Internet and the progressive adoption of electronic commerce. But more importantly, Hellofood through its mastery of the art of marketing and delivery has put aspects like delivery down to a minute by minute science as they have broken down every step of your food’s journey to perfect science so that all you have to do is go about your daily business and have your meals delivered in a timely manner and now the culinary scene and food ordering in Uganda have changed for the better.

This should make it clear that Hellofood is NOT a restaurant, and for easy understanding — it is an ordering platform for every one’s favorite restaurant.

Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ Campaign to highlight Sexual Harassment  



Nile Breweries under its flagship brand Nile Special has launched a behavioral change campaign dubbed “No Excuse” with the aim of addressing the predicament of sexual harassment in the country. The brand will address the subject by calling for smart drinking measures among its consumers,since alcohol abuse has been identified as one of the primary catalysts for sexual harassment.The aim of the ‘No Excuse’ campaign is to:

• shine a spotlight on the  sexual harassment problem.

• to bring about a change in long established societal behaviours and attitudes

• to activate bystanders with the aim of decreasing and preventing this act

• challenge the public to take appropriate action against perpetrators of sexual harassment

• encourage stakeholders to support the victims to access appropriate support services.

Attention is increasingly being paid to the prevalence of this vice in Uganda. Whether this is down to more cases being reported or the abuse is on the rise, is a matter worth investigating. What is certain, is that the public space in which women can freely express themselves must be guarded. This calls for collective reflection by all stakeholders on the measures to be undertaken to ensure that every individuals rights and freedom are protected as enshrined in the constitution under Article 20.Utilizing the brand’s online platforms, the campaign will implore the public have its say on what constitutes sexual harassment. The information will be curated and the data presented into a communication campaign to both raise awareness and also educate the public about sexual harassment while changing people’s attitudes and beliefs.

 Francis Nyende, the Nile Special Brand Manager said, “It is a good thing that the plight of women regarding sexual harassment is edging to the fore of the national discourse. But it’s also rather disturbing that almost daily there’s a story about a woman that has been sexually harassed. As one of the leading Ugandan brands we have decided to champion the cause. ”Our ultimate goal is to reduce and prevent the incidences of sexual harassment, which affects the lives of too many women, both directly and indirectly, and thereby make a much safer society.

“Some of the places where women are more susceptible to sexual harassment is during the nightlife (bars, discos etc). At certain hours of the night, after consuming a couple of bottles, some men throw caution to the wind at the expense of the women. So we are here to educate revelers that they should drink smart, there’s no excuse for sexual harassment,” says Nyende.

Ms. Gloria Nakafeero, the Commissioner Gender and Women Affairs, Ministry of Gender,

Labour and Social Development said, “We are using the ‘No Excuse’ campaign as a catalyst to

get people to question themselves and their behaviors. We are aware that by identifying the problem we shall need to do more to try and create meaningful change.  So by raising awareness about the issue, the existing laws and policies as well as the existing support services, we will contribute towards positive change in attitudes to make sexual harassment “inexcusable” and unacceptable and demand positive actions towards the elimination of sexual harassment.

I am happy to be associated with the Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ campaign.  It always starts with a simple insight. What rings true for me was the idea that in Uganda, whenever we observe or encounter of sexual harassment, we’re inclined to absent ourselves of any responsibility – or worse still, excuse behaviour that’s totally inexcusable.”  Article 24 of the constitution protects the dignity of every one in Uganda. No person shall be subjected to any form of inhuman or degrading treatment. This includes respect of a person to their psychological or mental wellbeing.

Enough is enough. Let’s stop excusing sexual harassment. Learn more at the Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ campaign
